Being a history enthusiast, I find myself continuously playing Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, long after finishing it. The game’s historical accuracy is what impresses me the most and keeps drawing me back into the game time and again.
The level of detail in the game’s depiction of ancient Greece’s architecture, culture, and mythology is incredible! I am amazed by the attention that went into creating this immersive historical world.
I found myself completely invested in the game’s narrative. Another aspect that made the game so engaging was its storyline. You can choose which character you want to start as, who are siblings, and if you have a preference for gender, either Kassandra or Alexios, a mercenary navigating the political conflicts of ancient Greece. What was the most exciting part of the narrative is getting to interact with historical figures such as Socrates, Herodotus, and Pericles which added so much more depth to the experience.
What I loved most about the game was how it involved me in uncovering the historical narrative through gameplay. To progress through the game, I had to explore the world and complete quests, while fighting my way through the game. Each interaction revealed new information about the history of ancient Greece.
The game’s immersion in a story world with well-developed characters and conflict was essential to my game play. The historical accuracy and attention to detail created a vivid and believable world that made me feel like I was actually living in ancient Greece.
